Kanye West Slams Men’s FashionMay 12, 2012 No Comments
Apparently men’s street fashion incensed Kanye West so much that he tweeted how much he ‘detested’ it. His extraordinary rant, which we hope he tweeted whilst stationary and parked, came as he was driving through New York City. He raged: “Just driving through the city and I see a few thing I hate … I hate button up shirts with hoodies, I hate hoodies with sport coats, I hate sport coats with button up shirts, jeans and dress shoes, I hate khaki trench coats with jeans and off brand work out sneakers, I hate big ass striped scarves…” Good job he doesn’t hate those who abuse English grammar!
Of course Kanye West could be promoting his own range of clothing launched in October 2011 by listing all the things he doesn’t sell, which would be easy since his DW clothing line only stocks women’s wear for now. Or perhaps Kanye West is considering moving into designer men’s wear and creating the kind of suits he favours, because Mr West has never ever of course, been photographed wearing either a hoodie or a sports top. Not ever. And he especially has not ever been seen wearing work out sneakers with jeans.
Kanye West’s DW clothing range has so far received quite a fair bit of criticism itself, mainly accusing the rap star of failing to establish his own sense of identity within his fashion brand. In fact the critics got to West so much that the rollingstone website reported that he banned fashion critics from his second DW collection in Paris earlier this year. Interestingly enough, that collection received much better reviews.
Whatever your feelings about hoodies and sports tops, it appears that for now, that particular brand of fashion is here to stay a little longer as people snap up vintage style jackets and tops from brands such as Ellesse in order to recreate the 80s fashion for men but with a little modern twist.
However Mr West will be pleased to know that men’s suits are once again proving a popular hit in men’s designer fashion, with Savile Row picking up catwalk accolades.Latest News
